Refund Available on OPG Court Fees

Back in July the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) announced that the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) had been over charging court fees for registration of Power of Attorneys and that the overpaid fees would be refunded.

MoJ have now published details of the refund scheme;

Anyone who registered their Power of Attorneys (LPA or EPA) between the 1st April 2013 and 31st March 2017 is entitled to a refund.

Only the donor (person who has made the power of attorney) or an attorney can apply for the refund.

It is a straight forward process that can be done online, click here for details. You will only need address and date of birth details for you and one of your attorneys along with your bank details for where you wish the refund to be paid into.
